  13. 13. <ul><li>Edusoft (The way of Assessment) </li></ul><ul><li>Assessment is a process that involves defining expected outcomes; creating opportunities for all students to achieve those outcomes; gathering, analyzing, interpreting, and reporting evidence so that we may understand and improve student learning (Suskie, 2005). </li></ul><ul><li>Measuring student learning requires expertise. While knowledge and skills in a major may be relatively easy to measure directly, measuring critical thinking or even written and oral communication requires specific assessment expertise. Assessment professionals understand which areas are best measured by tests and which are best measured by performances or portfolios graded with rubrics, or field supervisor and employer ratings. Surveys and focus groups are often used to assess student and alumni satisfaction, however, they do not directly measure student learning. It is best to have a variety of measures that lead to the same conclusions. </li></ul><ul><li>Measuring student learning requires resources. The development of good instruments by skilled staff and purchase of other measures are costly. </li></ul><ul><li>Reference: </li></ul><ul><li>Suskie, L. (2004).

Explicit details should be given as to how the lower percentile students can be reached and helped to excel. </li></ul><ul><li>Compare and go through data of all classes and grade levels trying to determine the weakness of the students who are struggling and provide specific instruction that will allow them to become proficient based on the data that has been collected. </li></ul><ul><li>Design curriculum and instruction strategies that help students learn established outcomes. </li></ul>More on Edusoft
